The first book in The Divinities series is a magical tale of witches and demons with a visit from a Goddess.
A group of people born to elite witch bloodlines known as Divinities are on a mission to protect a magical artifact and all magickin from demons.
Kalissa has been unable to access her visions due to very painful headaches and seems to have lost some her memories. Ayden, the new Sheriff was hurt by Kalissa when they were young, but now they have to face the past and join with their new family to fight a war.
The author has created a captivating paranormal world with some unique elements, lots of action/suspense, fantastic bewitching characters and steamy romance. The story is well written and well balanced with lots of substance including some real world issues.
The author conveys the emotional turmoil that the main characters feel with a depth that connects the reader to their plight. You can feel the heat build as Kalissa and Ayden’s romance grows and you can feel the tension as the characters are confronted and attacked by their enemies. The battle scenes are depicted very vividly and the reader is entertained from beginning to end. I can’t wait to read the next one.

I'm a big fan of paranormal romances, and I love reading stories by new-to-me authors. Lia Davis, though, isn't quite a new-to-me author.....but she is. I've been following her for quite sometime now, and joined her street team long ago, but this is the first book by her that I have read. It's the first book in her <strong>Divinities</strong> series, and what a rockin' start it is! Ms. Davis' parnormal elements are stunning and her characters are complex and real-to-life. The plot line is breath taking and I was completely captivated from first page to last. I really loved Kalissa's character. She was brilliantly created with a fierce independent nature. Her "third" eye, or visions, abilities were amazing! I would love to be able to have visions the way she does. Kalissa's parents died in an accident, but Kalissa saw who caused it after having a dream and rushing to the scene. Now she needs to find out why they did it and who,exactly, that person was. But, as she seeks the answers she needs after finding a mysterious letter from her mother, she nearly dies. Untder the watchful eye of the sexy new Maxville sheriff, her search just got more complicated. Something's intimately familiar about him, even though she's known him since childhood. There's more to the story, and she's determined to figure it all out. But,there's a problem. Demons don't want her to. Ayden is one hot cop! I adored his character! He's fiercely protective of Kalissa when he realizes she's been in an accident. But there's just one tiny problem. She tore his heart out and stomped all over it when they were teenagers and she left him for someone else. He has a right to be upset at her....or does he? Determined to finish what their parents started in seeking out the Sinew and keeping away from the demons and the Dark Divine, he tries to keep his heart in tact. But, as he learns more of the story, both from Kalissa and his cousin Zach, something's not adding up. He may just get his second chance at love with his eternal mate...that is, if the demons don't prevail first. Watching Ayden protect both Kalissa and his heart was awesome! The attraction between them was super hot and sizzling! There were so many times I wanted to trade places with Kalissa :-). These characters were absolutely perfect for their roles and really stole my heart. This 5 Book worthy start to Ms. Davis' new series is deserving of more than just a rating. It's deserving of hats-off praises, highest recommendations, being read again and again. It's filled with suspenseful twists, fantastic passion, magic that will captivate you and an ending that will drop your jaw and leave you ready for book 2 instantly! I can't wait until Kalissa's twin's story is told in Death's Storm, releasing in November 2012! *This review is based on a complimentary copy received in exchange for honest opinion*Was this review helpful?

Forgotten Visions by Lia Davis is a wonderfully thought out and developed story world where magic is not just real, but known. Sadly, humans being our ‘wonderful’ selves are prone to prejudice even in her world. But, and it’s a big one, lol. . . The new sheriff and a deputy are Divinities and set out to help unravel the mystery surrounding the deaths of other Divinities (like Kalissa and Khloe’s parents).
Lia’s writing draws you in from page one and keeps you there until the very last word. Her characters make you care about them as if they were people you might live near or work with.
Ayden is meant for Kalissa, but 15 years ago they parted thanks to a new male entering her life. Now Ayden is back, trying to keep the other Divinities alive, and win her heart again, but what happens when her demonic ex returns from the dead? . . .
If you love romance with mystery and action, this is a MUST read! If you love magic with a heart, the grab a copy of Forgotten Visions and pray that book 2 comes along soon because you will fall in love with the character and world.
